"It already popped. I didn't see it happen, but I mean, it was already fried!"

"I don't know what would've happened to my ear", said Colon.

This is the first fire incident reported for Apple AirPods, but it is not uncommon for iPhones and other devices to see such incidents because of the battery. "But I'm sure that since it hangs down, it could've been ear lobe, my ear lobe could've been burnt".

He believes the battery was the cause of the problem. "You can see flame damage", Colon told a local news station.

Jason Colon from Tampa, Florida, said he was listening to music while he was at the gym when he saw white smoke coming out of the earphones. An Apple spokesperson told the station that the company is investigating the situation. The same thing had happened with Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 smartphone. The truly wireless headphones from Apple have been a huge success.

As a result, we are relieved the new lightning EarPods are so much better than their predecessors.

On Thursday, two photographs showing him with the Hizb commanders Saddam Paddar and Aadil Malik went viral on social media. A fifth key suspect has also been identified. "It took them four months to plan this and we got them in one day", he said.

Apple's AirPods are a one of a kind device, featuring advanced technology that no other company is now offering.

They're surprisingly good at staying put within your ear, and the battery life is commendable.

AirPods user removed the earbud before it exploded.

The likelihood of losing them is real, but this fault lies in the hands of the consumer, rather than the manufacturer. But now, it's been alleged that Apple's Airpods have joined the list of products that can blow up.

They're not flawless, but for a first generation product, they're pretty good.
